Configuration Change Audit Report in Prime Infrastructure 2.1

Brian Saunders
Beginner
Beginner

Is there any plan to implement a Configuration Change Audit report in future releases of Prime Infrastructure (ie. 2.2)?  When I go into the Reporting area and run a Change Audit report under the Compliance section it doesn't give me any information in regards to configuration changes, only inventory changes.  There are managers who would like the ability to receive an e-mailed report of configuration changes within a 24 hours period.  Currently the only way I can tell that you can get this information is by logging into Cisco Prime and going to Network Audit under Operation / Device Work Center.

Thanks,

Brian

Configuration Change Management (with Baseline Compliance reporting) is projected for the next release after 2.2. As of now that's projected to be ca. April 2015.

On a side note, last I heard, 2.2 should be out in the next couple of weeks.

Hi Marvin,

I still do not see Change and Configuration Management in Cisco Prime Infrastructure 3.1.  I see that Cisco Prime Network has it in the documentation.  Am I missing something?

Thanks,

Tom

You need to enable Compliance Services if you haven't done so already.

Here's a link to the relevant section of the admin guide:

Thank you, sir.  The customer does not have the resources for the Professional virtual appliance. Therefore, they cannot enable the Compliance Services.

At least I have my answer.

You're welcome. the requirement to have the Professional level virtual appliance was removed as of PI 3.1.3.

  • Metadata for PSIRT and EOX reports is updated till May 2016.

    Compliance service support in standard Prime Infrastructure virtual appliance.

See the release notes here:

http://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/td/docs/net_mgmt/prime/infrastructure/3-1-3/release/notes/cpi_rn.html

That document says "Compliance service support in standard Prime Infrastructure virtual appliance."  

The Standard virtual appliance does not require as much as the Professional, but I don't think my client can do it either.

Maybe you can interest them in a new UCS server too. (just kidding)

Too bad but the Express and Express Plus level of Prime Infrasturcture will indeed not support the Compliance Feature.

Cisco adapted the feature from the Prime Network service provider platform where customer are generally more used to throwing a lot of horseppower at the process to make it run in an acceptable manner.

Actually, I will try to sell them UCS.  :-)

Thank you, sir.  You have been a great help.
